Charleston Police Department PSOC open ahead of Steve Bannon Citadel visit tomorrow
Steve Bannon, former White House Chief Strategist, will be making his visit to The Citadel tomorrow, November 10 to attend the Patriot Dinner hosted by The Citadel Republican Society.
For this reason, the Charleston Police Department’s Public Safety Operation Center will be opened beginning at 3 p.m. to the City of Charleston, Citadel Public Safety, Charleston county, and the State Law Enforcement Division to manage the upcoming event.
This is being done to ensure the lines of communications between law enforcement agencies and the community are open.
The event will also be bringing street closures.
Hagwood Avenue from Fishburne Street to Huger Street will remain closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic from around 3:30 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Additionally, pass through traffic on Congress Street from Hagood Avenue to President Street will not be allowed during the same time frame.
There will also be an increase in officers tomorrow, Friday, November 10 as well.
